Six Million Taxpayers To Owe IRS For ObamaCare Tax…Wait, It’s Not A Tax, So, Penalty Or Fine Or Oh Alright, It’s A Tax

Hat/Tip to Newsmax. In 2009, President Obama and George Stephanopoulos got into a feisty discussion on whether ObamaCare was a tax or a penalty or a fine or a…*sigh* Anyway, it went something like this: GS: “Under this mandate, the government is forcing people to spend money, fining you if you don’t. How is that not a tax?” To which, Obama offered his standard, rambling response… BO: “Well, hold on a second, George. Here’s what’s happening. You and I are both paying $900, on average—our families—in higher premiums because of uncompensated care. Now what I’ve said is that if you can’t afford […]

Everywhere You Go, Obama Wants To Know, He’s Tracking Your License Plate To And Fro

  He sees you when you’re driving. He knows where you came from. He’s watching where you’re going. And he’s waiting for you around the bend. I’ll bet you thought Enemy of the State was a work of fiction. Nope. While you were singing along to American Idol, fretting about #DeflateGate, or waiting for the Blizzard That Never Was, the Obama administration built a massive database to track us in real time. Millions of license plate scanners mounted along roads nationwide log our every move, with the data freely available to any law enforcement agency who asks for it. Privacy? […]

26 States Now Suing To Stop Obama’s Executive Amnesty…

Hat/Tip to WeaselZippers. Well, if Boehner and McConnell won’t do anything about it… GOP In Full Retreat? Boehner And McConnell Raise The White Flag On Obama’s Executive Amnesty Tennessee and Nevada join the coalition. Via Townhall: Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton announced Monday that both Nevada and Tennessee have joined the Lone Star state’s challenge of President Obama’s executive amnesty, bringing the total number of states fighting Obama’s unilateral immigration policies to 26. “Texas is proud to lead a coalition that now includes a majority of the United States standing up against the President’s rogue actions,” Attorney General Ken Paxton […]

It’s Official: Obama Traded Taliban Five For A Deserter

  Hat/Tip to Foxnews. From the beginning, it was rumored that Bowe Bergdahl was a deserter as soon as the trade came to light. Bergdahl left a note practically saying as much, along with the fact that soldiers in his unit blew the whistle by telling the press that they were pressured to be quiet on the subject. Well, now it is official. A former military intelligence officer claimed Tuesday that the White House was delaying the announcement of its decision to file desertion charges against Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl, who was released by Taliban-aligned militants last year in exchange for […]

Despite Al-Qaeda Operating In Yemen, Obama To Release 47 Yemeni Nationals From GITMO

  Hat/Tip to Susan Jones at cnsnews.com. Al-Qaeda is strong and operating in Yemen? Well then! Let’s just let a bunch of Yemenis free that are in GITMO!! The Obama administration says it is “in a war against al Qaeda.” But at the same time, it is trying to release 54 more Gitmo detainees, 47 of them from Yemen, which is one of the “dark corners” where al Qaeda operates. Oh, the Obama administration talks a good game… “We say we’re in a war against al Qaeda,” White House Chief of Staff Denis McDonough told CBS’s “Face the Nation” on […]

CBO: Obama To Leave Gargantuan Deficits For Next President

  Hat/Tip to Conn Carroll at TownHall.com. Obama will still be screwing America and Americans even after he is out of office. His policies will explode the debt and deficits unless measures are taken to curb the insane spending his programs will incur. Federal deficits may have been falling since the end of the recent recession, but thanks to spending increases in major health care programs, including ObamaCare, deficits are set to explode in 2017, according to a new report by the Congressional Budget Office. Thanks to the recent recession and President Obama’s trillion dollar stimulus, the federal budget deficit reached an all […]

GOP In Full Retreat? Boehner And McConnell Raise The White Flag On Obama’s Executive Amnesty

Hat/Tip to S.A. Miller at The Washington Times. What was it Speaker Boehner said about Obama’s Illegal Actions on Executive Amnesty, again? Oh, yeah: “The House will soon take action aimed at stopping the president’s unilateral action when it comes to immigration,” Boehner said at his press briefing today. “Republicans are in agreement that this is a gravely serious matter.” “The president’s unilateral actions were an affront to the rule of law and our system of government,” Boehner said. “The American people don’t support it and as their representatives we cannot let it stand.” “I said we’d fight it tooth […]

Due To Poor Ratings, President Obama’s State Of The Union Placed On Hiatus

Just six days after President Obama’s State of the Union it has been announced that the show will be placed on hiatus and no more episodes will be ordered. “We just didn’t get the ratings we hoped for” said an network executive. We had high hopes for the State of the Union show.  Obama’s a clean cut, well-spoken man and we still think he’s going to be a big star one day. He’s personable and has a fantastic wit. I mean every time he mentions a new free service the government will provide I just crack up. We just have to […]

GOP Runs Scared, Pulls Bill Banning 20 Week Abortion

If there is one thing I have run out of, it is patience with the GOP. This started after the abysmal showing in the Presidential election of 2012. Since that time, we have seen a continual slide towards the acceptance of amnesty for illegal immigrants. That, along with other pandering, was aimed at Hispanic voters. The GOP seemed set on the idea that 2012 was lost because of alienation of Hispanics. Never mind that so many conservatives stayed home because they didn’t want to vote for Mitt Romney. This shows a complete lack of conviction on the part of the […]

Obama And His Senior Advisers Furious About Netanyahu’s Upcoming Visit: “There Will Be A Price!”

  Hat/Tip to Fox News. Looks like John Boehner finally grew a pair and took action to directly challenge President Obama, albeit in a round-about manner. Speaker of the House, John Boehner invited Israeli Prime Minister Bibi Netanyahu to speak at a joint session of Congress. And he did so without consulting with the White House. It seemed to be in response to Obama’s State of the Union speech, in which he warned Congress against new sanctions on Iran to halt their development of nuclear weapons. Boehner has asked Netanyahu to talk about the threats posed by Iran and ISIS. […]

It’s Good To Be The King: Obama Exempts Himself From “Free College” Tax…

It figures. Barack Obama’s communist proposal to tax your kid’s college savings account has an exemption — for Malia and Sasha Obama. One of the less talked-about proposals President Obama offered this week was to take away the tax-exempt status of 529 college savings plans. These very popular plans allow parents to defer income – before it’s taxed – into savings accounts to then be withdrawn, also tax-free, to use for qualified college expenses. I’ll dispense for the moment with the larger question of whether stuff like this represents a wise overall approach to the tax code (it doesn’t) and […]

Thousands of Frightened Parisians Flee Scene Of James Taylor Concert……Or This Is Too Good For Just One Post

Yesterday I bravely reported on the James Taylor, Herman Munster John Kerry concert in France.  (Somebody has to. God knows the American press won’t.)  Tomorrow I will write about my undercover experience at the State Department. Today’s post will be devoted to the tragic aftermath in Paris.  The panic. The rioting.  The looting.  The destruction. “Eet was like zee revolution” said one frightened Parisian. Zee people run.  They flee! We set up barricades in the streets. We shoot. We sing patriotic songs.  All to stop zee Hermun Munster from hugging us. If the sight of an aging American recording artist […]

Top Democratic Senator Attacks President Obama On Iran

Hat/Tip to Al Weaver at The Daily Caller. We’re all familiar with President Obama’s stance on Iran’s pursuit of nuclear weapons. He is all for it. However, what we’re not familiar with is someone from his own Party being critical of him and his policies regarding Iran and her pursuit of nukes. And we’re even LESS familiar when that criticism comes from not just someone in the Democratic Party, but a high ranking Democratic Senator, like Bob Menendez. “I have to be honest with you,” Menendez said, “the more I hear from the administration and its quotes, the more it […]

As For Last Night’s SOTU, Pay No Attention To The Lame Duck behind The Podium

  I have absolutely no intention of watching Dear Leader tell us how great he is tonight. Because for the next 2 years he’ll be putting the “lame” in lame duck, and really, will the GOP fall for any of his ridiculously liberal policy prescriptions? Nah. Obama is about to discover the meaning of the word irrelevant. Starting with his blueprint for playing class warfare with the part of America that still gets up and goes to work every morning. No matter what Obama says, his policies have been devasting to the middle class. People are worse off now than […]

In Display of Solidarity President Obama Sends James Taylor to Paris

A week after the tragic terrorist attacks that left 17 Frenchmen dead, and with criticism mounting over his absence at the unity march that attracted world leaders, President Obama proved how serious he is about the transatlantic partnership by having singer/songwriter James Taylor sing for the still-grieving nation. “I want to French people to know that even if none of those killed were black, I still think this was a serious man-caused workplace violence event” said the President from his golf cart. From the moment I first heard the news I have been pondering what I can do to show […]

How Obama Will Pay For His Plan For Free Community College

Well, this didn’t take long and certainly comes as no surprise. That is especially true if you have paid attention to how President Obama has conducted business during the first six years of his administration. He has acted like a typical liberal. When it doubt, always raise taxes. Never cut spending, never cut waste, always, always raise taxes. And that is exactly what he is planning to attempt in the last two years of his presidency. Do you remember his proposal for free community college for anyone who is willing to work for it? He actually described it as a […]

ObamaCare Penalty: Big Shock At Tax Time

Hat/Tip to Tom Howell, Jr at the Washington Times. President Obama said that it’s absolutely not a tax, except when his lawyers argued for the law in front of the Supreme Court, then it WAS a tax. More to the point, it is Big Government getting into our wallets, tax or not – We The People are left holding the bag. Those Americans who didn’t get health insurance last year could be in for a rude awakening when the IRS asks them to fork over their ObamaCare penalty — and it could be a lot more than the $95 many […]

Obama To Congress: Back Off Any New Sanctions On Iran

  Hat/Tip to Nickarama at WeaselZippers. He continues to stand with the Muslims when the political winds shift. Lord knows, don’t let any sanctions interfere with them finishing their nuclear reactor. Via Washington Examiner: President Obama told lawmakers, including fellow Democrats, that he would veto a bill imposing new sanctions on Iran, saying there was “no good argument” for increasing penalties on Tehran right now. “There is no good argument for us to try to undercut, undermine the negotiations, until they’ve played themselves out,” Obama said in a joint news conference Friday with British Prime Minister David Cameron at the […]
